it does lean towards lilac tone in the pan but comes out to be a pink coral when swatched!!

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture is soft.The blush is finely milled and devoid of any chalkiness.I like the fact that it isnt insanely pigmented as in cases of some blush as i love applying blush atleast 2-3 times and there isnt any worry to go OTT.

???????????????????????????????

This blush gives a coral soft focus to cheeks that i love.

The finish is matte as said.It doesnt clog pores nor accentuate them!!

Staying power is 6-7 hours which is quite decent!

???????????????????????????????

PROS:

  • Soft and smooth texture.
  • great formula.
  • doesnt accentuate pores neither clog them.
  • blends easily and beautifully.
  • travel friendly.
  • ingredients mentioned.
  • matte finish which is wearable even to office.
  • the shade is decently pigmented.
  • decent staying power.

applied a bit extra for the purpose of review! 🙂

CONS:

  • expensive.
  • can be ordered online only.
  • no brush provided.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I would have given it 5/5 bit 1 mark less for the fact that it isnt available in India and has to be ordered.I love everything about this and use it almost everyday.The formula is superb and so is the shade.

Highly recommended!!!

Note:  I got this blush from a Blog sale that was recently held at one of the popular Indian blogs and got it for Rs.1000!!! 🙂 🙂
